What exactly is Threat Hunting?

Threat hunting is the process of looking for cyber threats that are hiding in the network, datasets, and endpoints without being noticed. To find bad actors, the process involves going deep into the environment. To stop these kinds of attacks, threat hunting is very important. Attackers or hackers can stay in the network for months without being seen, quietly collecting login credentials and other private information.

To successfully complete threat hunting, the following steps must be taken:

  1. The Trigger : When advanced detection tools see strange behavior that could be a sign of a threat, a trigger sends threat hunters to a certain machine or network area to look into it further. Most of the time, proactive hunting starts with an idea about a new threat. For example, a security team might look for new threats that can get around existing protections by, for example, using fileless malware technologies.
  1. Investigation : During the investigation phase, the threat hunter uses tools like EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) to look into how likely it is that a system has been hacked. The investigation will keep going until it is decided that the activity is not malicious or until a full understanding of the malicious behavior is made.
  1. Resolution: During the resolution phase, operations and security teams use information about malicious activity to deal with the incident and reduce threats. Data from both good and bad things can be used to make automation technology more effective without any more human help.

Cyber threat hunters perform this process to learn about the attacker’s methods and goals. Also, they use the data they collect to learn about an organization’s security environment, make predictions about how to improve security in the future and fix problems that already exist.

What is Threat Hunting with InfosecTrain?

Our Threat Hunting Professional Online Training Course improves your skills and helps you understand threats and their goals.

Threat Hunting Professional is an online training course created by InfosecTrain that teaches you how to seek risks proactively and become a better-balanced penetration tester. Our skilled educators will teach you the fundamentals and procedures of threat hunting, as well as step-by-step instructions for hunting for threats across the network.

With this course, you will also learn many important tools required for Threat Hunters. Here is the list of those tools:

Wireshark: Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer or a program that captures packets from a network connection, similar to the ones connecting your computer to your home office or the internet. A packet is a distinct unit of data in a standard Ethernet network. Wireshark is the world’s most popular packet sniffer.

NetworkMiner: NetworkMiner is a Windows Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT). If you want to find out what operating systems, hostnames, sessions, open ports, and so on are on the network, NetworkMiner should be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capture program.

Tcpdump: Tcpdump is a command-line interface-based data-network packet analysis computer software. It displays TCP/IP and other packets transferred or received across a network to which the machine is connected. Tcpdump is free software distributed under the BSD license.

SysInternals Suite: The SysInternals suite of tools is a collection of Windows apps that may be downloaded free of charge from the Microsoft Technet website. They are all portable, meaning you don’t have to install them and use them on any PC by putting them on a flash drive.

Brim: Brim is an open-source desktop program for network and security professionals. In Brim, you can quickly find and analyze data from both structured log files and packet captures, like those made by Wireshark or Zeek.

The brim is especially helpful for security and network administrators who need to manage large packet capture, particularly those too large for Wireshark, Tshark, or other packet analyzers.

RITA: Real Intelligence Threat Analysis is an open-source te, particularly a framework—designed to assist enterprises in detecting hostile activities on their networks. RITA, a tool built by Black Hills Information Security, is mostly based on statistical analysis rather than signatures.

Redline: Redline®, FireEye’s premium free endpoint security application, offers users with host investigative skills to detect malicious activities via memory and file analysis, as well as the creation of a threat assessment profile.

ELK Stack: The ELK Stack is intended to enable users to search, analyze, and display data in real time from any source and in any format.
